Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven (also known as AMVK) is an artist of singular complexity. Born in 1951 in Antwerp, where she still lives and works, she has been active since the 1970s as a visual artist, graphic designer and performer. She has always been a pioneer. She should, first and foremost, be considered an artist for the future. AMVK’s practice is truly interdisciplinary.

M HKA wants to introduce Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven to a wider audience as an innovator of forms and interpreter of moods - as oxygen of the whole society.

"A film about love, identity and re-incarnation. Trapped in the cycle of evolution. The film was made to accompany a live performance by Club Moral in which Danny Devos shouts, his head under water, the sound amplified by a hydrophone. This while AMVK recites the text: “The Lips of Osiris Ani, a fragment of the Egyptian Book of the Dead in which the gods are asked to re-open the mouth of the beloved one."
